Waiting List Status for the
Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List is closed.


 For those who applied January 19th-21st, 2016 HCV Waiting List:

Effective immediately, Spokane Housing Authority (SHA) no longer provides placement or rank information to applicants on the 2016 waiting list. Since a household’s position on the waiting list may change as preferences for admission change*, providing a placement or rank to an applicant would be inappropriate. 

If your household’s address or preference changes, make sure that you report these changes to our office by completing a Change of Circumstance Form.  When a voucher becomes available for your household, you will be contacted in writing at the address you have provided to the SHA.

The preferences for 2016 Spokane Waiting List applicants are as follows:

(1)  A Household whose Head of Household or Co-Head/Spouse is Disabled

(2)  A Household whose Head of Household or Co-Head/Spouse is 62 years old or older

(3)  A Household that has one or more minor child or children as part of their household

Households with a preference are placed on the waiting list according to the preference and then by the date and time the application was submitted. A household that does not meet at least one of the listed preferences will be placed on the waiting list following households with preferences according to the date and time the application was submitted (all households with a preference would be served before households with no preference).   

*Example:  A household whose head and spouse were not disabled at the time of application but later became disabled and subsequently reported the change in preference – would move from a position on the waiting list without a preference to a position with a preference (a higher rank).


Please be aware, read our notice about waiting list phone scams,
and protect your personal and credit card information.
Our application process for the Housing Choice Voucher is FREE of charge.
